What is the Trainwreck strain?
The Trainwreck strain is one of the most potent strains of cannabis available, with a very high THC content. It is a combination of two sativa strains and one indica strain, combined in a 80:20 sativa to indica ratio, which means that this strain leans towards a cognitive high. The strain does however have a high THC content of 18% to 25%, depending on the specific variety, which makes it also ideal for those looking for a physical high, combined with the cognitive high that is typical of sativa strains. This is the most striking feature of Trainwreck: it manages to combine this cognitive high very well with a slight physical numbness in a way that is unmatched by other strains.
